Socialist Stamps of the Day featuring Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova, the first woman and first civilian to have flown to space, in a flight on the Vostok 6 on this day in history, June 16, 1963. Before her recruitment as cosmonaut, Tereshkova was a textile factory assembly worker. She became a prominent member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment, ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment NASAtelevision on USTREAM. Science

The High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment aboard the ISS was activated April 30, 2014. It is mounted on the External Payload Facility of the European Space Agency’s Columbus module. This experiment includes several commercial HD video cameras aimed at the earth which are enclosed in a pressurized and temperature controlled housing. Video from these cameras is transmitted back to earth and also streamed live on this channel. While the experiment is operational, views will typically sequence though the different cameras. Between camera switches, a gray and then black color slate will briefly appear. Since the ISS is in darkness during part of each orbit, the images will be dark at those times. During periods of loss of signal with the ground or when HDEV is not operating, a gray color slate or previously recorded video may be seen.
